The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) has disclosed that it will officially launch ‘Operation Rescue Saint Lucia’ with the party’s planned march on St. Jude Hospital on Saturday, October 14, 2023.
“On Saturday we officially launch Operation Rescue Saint Lucia. Your country needs you now more than ever,” UWP leader Allen Chastanet wrote on Facebook.
” Bring along your family members and friends as we march to the St. Jude Hospital to demand better from the Government,” the opposition leader stated.’
The former Prime Minister asserted that the government focuses on politics rather than dealing with the issues that affect people.
UWP Deputy Political leader Dominic Fedee told an opposition Town Hall meeting on Sunday that the ‘flambeau flame’ was shining brightly across Saint Lucia.
Fedee said that the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party was ‘shaky and worried’ about the movement that was building up.
Former Castries Central MP Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, who also addressed the town hall meeting, recalled that people did not have to get a call to march.
“We had a soul. But now we are losing our soul,” the former MP asserted.
“That is why we are so passive,” she asserted.
Nevertheless, Flood-Beaubrun declared that there’s something called righteous indignation.
She told the audience that people ought to get vexed over some things.
“That is a good vex – a vex that pleases God. A vex that is morally justified. A vex that nobody has to ask you to get vexed,” she explained.
Flood-Beaubrun said St. Jude Hospital was something to get vexed about.
